A tool for integrating your organization’s approaches to business continuity management and disaster risk reduction
DRI Philippines undertook a mapping exercise to determine which of the Sendai Framework requirements are covered or enhanced by adoption of the Professional Practices for Business Continuity Management standard. This paper adds value to that analysis by reversing the process, looking at each Professional Practice and identifying which clauses within Sendai are supported by that specific practice. In order to do this, the Sendai Framework clauses have been coded in line with the text in the Sendai documentation.
This mapping document provides private sector organizations a roadmap for implementing the Sendai Framework into their existing resilience program. Policymakers will also benefit from this mapping as it will provide a basis for their discussion about the value of the Sendai Framework to the organizations in their communities in a language and methodology that is already in wide use globally. It is hoped that this tool will inspire cross-sectoral conversation by providing a common language across the disciplines and that it will encourage action toward implementing the Sendai Framework with the Professional Practices as a practical guideline.
